DC3 scholarships are different from the Foundation scholarships.

Application for Foundation scholarships does not guarantee an award. All determinations of awards are at the discretion of the Dodge City Community College Foundation. No scholarship with the Foundation is guaranteed to roll over to the following year: all students must reapply each year.


If no minimum GPA was requested by the donor, the Foundation considers a 2.0 GPA as the minimum requirement

Due to variants in investment results, not all of the scholarships listed are available each year.

Applications will not be considered and/or processed if the application is incomplete, past the deadline, or missing required attachments.
